"WORD TO THE WISE Hi, I just wanted to drop a few lines to tell everyone how helpful North Shore Records, Inc./Tonya Rae, LA Music Talks, and Marc Davison of ALL AREA ACCESS have been to my partner and I. We have not only gotten college bookings, radio and Internet airplay, but also the number nine spot in the CMJ (College Music Journal) and Gavin Report. ~ Reginald Owen Kymbuloo Publishing"
"I thought it was pretty thorough and well written. It seems fairly consistent with what Tim Sweeney and Diane Rapaport had to say, but I like the detail you went to. I especially appreciated the honesty with respect to getting airplay on college with country, as neither of the other two authors I mentioned touched on that, and I suspected that would be an issue. It's good to hear that from some personal experience. ~ Rick Paul"

Tonya Rae was just ten years old when she began making a name for herself. "I just walked into a dinner club, and there was a lady singing," she says. "I told myself, 'I can do that,' and I walked up and told the club owner the same thing. He looked at me and laughed, because I was this ten-year-old squirt, and he said, 'Come in Monday and you can sing then,' thinking I'd never do it. I came in the following Monday, and he had to let me sing." Tonya has never looked back. Beginning in that club, she gained a reputation in the Santa Cruz area, where she was raised, and became a popular performer on the club and fair circuit. Today, her beautifully lyrical voice, showmanship, and crowd-pleasing personality have brought her to national and international attention. Her newest CD and her five-song CD, Downhome Girl, have received rave reviews from around the world, and have received airplay across the globe. Recently, Tonya shot straight to # 1 on KOFI Country 104.5 FM in MN, ousting such heavy weights as Garth Brooks and Shania Twain to name a few. Tonya's unique blend of Country and Jazz music have brought such comments as the following:
"I truly enjoyed the fact that she strode easily from jazz, blues, and into country with an ease I have not seen till this point¼we hold Tonya's abilities in the highest regard." - Warren Murchie, Chief Editor, Heart of the Country
"Tonya Rae's voice has the purity of Billie Holiday." - John Iveny Shelton, Editor for Country Song Roundup - "Everything about this CD just screams country. While country may not be my favorite style of music, I have to judge every CD on it's quality, not it's style, & this CD is quite simply put, pretty stunning¼If only all country music was like this." - hEARd Magazine, Australia
Her incredible vocal style has won accolades and several awards, the most current being:
Recently, Tonya won "Female Vocalist of the Year 2000" for the Golden Music Awards (GMA)in Nashville 2000, "BattleNet Winner", January 1997, (battle against the Internet bands) and Levi Strauss 501 Jeans, "Band of the Week Award", 1997.
Tonya has always been something of a prodigy. By the age of four, she was able to listen to her Grandmother's playing of classical music and Scott Joplin pieces and play them by ear herself. From that point, she found herself able to pick up and quickly learn to play almost any instrument from guitar and piano, to drums, saxophone, and flute. She is also a naturally gifted harmony singer. She did her first acting in kindergarten, appearing in musicals and dramatic roles alike, and gradually progressing to the point where she was acting, directing and overseeing music for community theater productions. Growing up she heard, along with her Grandmother's music, her mother's favorites which included, Oak Ridge Boys, John Denver, Dolly Parton, and the Eagles. Tonya was particularly partial to the Eagles and Dolly Parton, and Country Music became her first love. These days she is partial to the music of such Country and Pop greats as: Vince Gill, Shania Twain, Whitney Houston, and LeAnn Rimes. A versatile stylist with a strong and expressive voice, Tonya is also a consummate entertainer, making her a favorite among music fans. She is constantly in motion, walking through audiences and passing her energy and emotion on to them wherever she performs. In all, her combination of musical prowess, passionate vocals, and high-energy stage presence make Tonya Rae an artist to watch.
"In all, her combination of musical prowess, passionate vocals and high-energy stage presence make Tonya Rae an artist to watch." - Rob Simbeck, ABC Radio Network Today
"Your CD is one of the finest to come down the pike in a long, long time. The purity of your voice, the voice control, and the heartfelt feeling in your singing brought tears to my eyes." - Helen Ullery, Pres. of the Wyoming Country Music Foundation
"Your voice sounds just like Billie Holiday." - John Iveny Shelton, Editor for Country Song Roundup, former editor of Hit Parade
